Added to my account. Probably won't have time to play but hey can't say no to a freebie 😂!

JEECE209d ago (Edited 209d ago )

I'd rather pay for a game on Steam than have it free on Epic Games Store.

Tell me you love Fortnite without telling me you love Fortnite.

Some people just want capitalist communism and for Steam to have no competition. All of a sudden investing over a decade into 1 digital store front or having all your eggs in one basket looks under threat as the competition heats up. Now they are starting to see the potential pitfalls of what if Steam were to lose in the long run. The best solution was always the one we had right now. Library in your home and go to physical or online stores so no one has complete control of your loyalty or media. (Physical Media).

JEECE209d ago

Nah, I dislike having tons of janky clutter on my computer. I'd certainly be willing to pay for a game I really wanted rather than get it for free if getting it for free means embracing janky clutter. It's like getting something "free with ads." The ads are their own type of price.

mkis007209d ago

But EGS isn't even janky.

ocelot07209d ago

I'll just claim it and then never see the egs until I need it next. Same as I do with steam. Why use multiple when GOG Galaxy is a thing?

franwex209d ago

For some people it's Steam or nothing. I too use GOG Galaxy. It even has my xbox stuff.

darksky209d ago

There is nothing wrong with EGS. I have GOG Galaxy, Steam and EGS running and the pc is not struggling or crashing. I have more games on EGS than Steam due to all the freebies. It's good to have options other than Steam.

Finally, Resistance: Retribution 🔥

It's an alright month overall. I think Sony should try to more consistently get some high quality indies Day 1 in the service, e.g. Ultros would have been good. Those have usually been some of the better months, e.g. Stray, Sea Of Stars, Tchia.

Shame that for this version of Outer Worlds, you can't import your save. 😔 Truly Spacer's Choice

darthv72159d ago

retribution was a cool game. It's the only one that allowed you to link a DS3 controller using Resistance 2 to play it (as far as i know). It was an interesting experiment that didnt offer 2nd analog support though but Im betting this version does.

Eonjay159d ago

Good point. One assumes that is the reason for the delay on releasing it.

ChasterMies159d ago

Joke’s on Outer Worlds Spacers Choice. I quit after the first planet in Outer Worlds.

MaximusPrime_159d ago

Glad I didn't buy NFS rebound. I expected this to be on PS Plus.

ravens52158d ago

Unbound lol. N I got it for 15 physical, 🤷🏽. I'll take it. Jus got extra this year for $80, which is a great deal. If I can pay $80 on sale every year I'd stick with Extra. I don't mind buying a game but then it shows up here cause then I can download it to have it digitally but still have MY copy. Once they take it off I can still play it.

Eonjay159d ago (Edited 159d ago )

You can say what you want about day one purchases but besides that Plus really blows GamePass out of the water.

NFS, Outer Worlds and 4 different Tales of Games... and Retribution. And you throw the monthly games on top of that... its no competition.

BTW... how is it that no one realized that Microsoft could just put its games on Plus. No one seems to realize that Microsoft and Sony are now working to enrich each other. (Console ware is over)

darthv72159d ago

Sadly, Retribution is only for premium users... not us extra folk. I do have the original UMD, but it would be nice to get it digitally like i did with killzone liberation and stardust. Both of which i already owned digitally on my Go/Vita and it was cool when those were made available for the PS5 as then i could dl them.

Eonjay159d ago

This is one UMD I never had but thats really awesome you still have an original.

ChasterMies159d ago

How can Game Pass be the best deal on gaming when it is more expensive than PS+?

badboyz09159d ago

Plus you need a platform to.

Petebloodyonion159d ago

Gamepass PC is way cheaper to PS+ and even way cheaper if you use MS rewards points

Redgrave159d ago

Is that Jet Moto 2, under Resistance? As of writing, it's just an image and no text.
